Cacao Pod- Semuliki Forest Dark Chocolate

Collections: bars- Origin, Newly released

The beautiful cacao beans we used to make this chocolate pod are cared for and grown by 500 smallholder farmers in the lush growing region of Bundibugyo in Uganda. Each farm is 1-2 hectares, either owned as family land or leased from other farmers. Each bag of cacao we receive comes with a tag that traces the beans back to each individual farmer.

Wet beans are bought and transferred to a central post harvest facility in a converted B&B in the village of Bumate. The facility is located at the base of the hills leading into the mountains taking advantage of maximum sunshine and limiting runoff.

This chocolate pod is community supported. Chocolatemakers are given an opportunity to pay a bonus per kg to be used directly to support the farmers that make Semuliki Forest cacao possible. This year the fund will be used to pay school fees for the farmer’s children.
